The G2 SERIES is the new Olympus Soft Imaging Solutions TEM camera line-up. The 2nd generation of Olympus Soft Imaging Solutions high resolution TEM CCD cameras is based on a finely balanced concept of electronics, optics, design and functionality. Each of the cameras of the G2 Series reflects the current requirements of industry, biomedicine, life sciences and the materials sciences.
The G2 SERIES includes high-resolution CCD cameras for wide-angle ports and for bottom-mounted positions of all standard TEM's. All G2 SERIES cameras are highly sensitive, have very high readout rates, are easy to install and are integrated with iTEM, the TEM imaging platform.
MegaViewG2 - Fast side-mounted TEM CCD Camera
The optimized optics of the MegaViewG2 system ensures great sensitivity and light efficiency, as well as a high signal-to-noise ratio.
The 2/3" interline CCD image sensor used in the MegaViewG2 has 1376 x 1032 pixel resolution with a 14-bit dynamic range. The MegaViewG2 is the ideal choice for numerous life-science applications due to its effective CCD pixel size close to 20 x 20 µm² and a full well capacity of 24,000 e-.
Binning modes of 2x, 4x and 8x are supported by the MegaViewG2. The MegaViewG2 supports frame rates of over 25 images per second at 2x binning and of 15 images per second at full resolution.
KeenViewG2 - Fast bottom-mounted TEM CCD Camera
This fiber-optically coupled 14-bit camera sets benchmarks with its finely balanced concept of electronics, optics, design and functionality. The 2/3” interline CCD image sensor used in the KeenViewG2 provides 1376 x 1032 pixel resolution with a 14-bit dynamic range. The KeenViewG2 is the best choice for those looking for an easy-to-handle, high-resolution camera for both the materials sciences and life sciences with its effective pixel size of 23.5 x 23.5 µm² and a full well capacity of 24,000 e-.
The KeenViewG2 supports frame rates of more than 25 images per second at 2x binning and of 15 images per second at full resolution. Binning modes of 2x, 4x and 8x are supported by KeenviewG2.
CantegaG2 - 2k x 2k bottom-mounted TEM CCD Camera
The CantegaG2 is the 2nd generation of the Olympus Soft Imaging Solutions 2k x 2k bottom-mounted TEM CCD camera family. The fiber optically coupled CantegaG2 uses an improved YAG scintillator which provides superior uniformity and homogeneity. The camera can be freely rotated under vacuum conditions in order to align the CCD chip to the specimen feature or the tilt axis of the goniometer. The CantegaG2 offers extremely low exposure times (as little as 1 ms and up to 100 s), making acquisition viable for conditions of intense illumination and also of very low intensity. The CCD sensor provides 2048 x 2048 pixel resolution with a 14-bit dynamic range. The full-frame CCD chip offers a pixel size of 14 µm x 14 µm with an active area of 28.7 mm x 28.7 mm. The CantegaG2 supports two readout rates at 14 bits. The 2 MHz mode produces images of the highest quality at convenient frame rates. In the high speed 5 MHz-mode the camera offers about 6 frames per second at binning 4 and 1 frame per second at full resolution. At any resolution, this camera provides superb dynamic range and sensitivity. Binning modes of 2x, 4x and 8x are supported by the CantegaG2. This means that sensitivity can be increased even further.
